NEIL BURDETT AKA ‘OCD’

As a youngster Neil loved being active and would run everywhere. Forest Gump style. Obsessed with Rugby and Martial Arts, It was only as a result of the knowledge he accrued from his degree in Sports & Exercise Science, that he became more focused on the science behind the training, and realised this was where he wanted to forge his career.

As his ultimate passion, Neil has acquired 9 professional accreditations over the last 10 years in the sports science field. As arguably one of the most qualified and knowledgeable fat loss specialists in the south. He is a strict advocator of the paleo diet and takes every opportunity to educate athletes on the benefits of improved diet on all aspects of health, fitness and wellbeing.

In addition to his primary function within the NMA coaching team as a BioSignature Assessor, Neil is undisputedly NMA’s most devoted Strength Coach.

MATT BEARD AKA ‘VMO’

Matt’s passion for fitness has been a lifelong one. Having always enjoyed physical endeavour and pursued most sports at school, college and throughout University, he started his career on the gym floor at the age of 18. By his own admission, using a gym had historically always been something he did for aesthetic reasons rather than performance related goals. It was only once he was introduced to the concept of CrossFit® in 2009 did he realise that by training to be fitter and stronger, he could ultimately achieve both.

Having trained and become certified in Olympic lifting, Power lifting, Gymnastics, Strongman and Kettlebells, he now truly understands the concept of effective training, and utilises this knowledge when coaching classes and individuals, to maximise potential and results.

As the resident CrossFit® guru and advocate, he is inspired and challenged daily by his peers to strive for success in both his own athleticism and coaching skills.

Pocklet

NAOMI BAZELEY AKA ‘POCKET ROCKET’

As one of the most loyal, committed and shortest female athletes in the box Naomi, by her own admission, hasn’t always a keen gym member! Overweight and a hater of sports in her teenage years, Naomi attributed her poor diet and lethargy to greasy boarding school dinners and easy access to the on-site tuck shop.

Stepping into a gym for the first time at the age of 20, the standard 45 minutes monotonous cardio routine followed by a few uncoordinated attempts on the resistance machines did nothing to motivate her. It was only once she hired a Personal Trainer did she learn how train functionally and efficiently, breeding a new buzz and passion for fitness. Naomi qualified herself as a personal trainer and discovered CrossFit® in 2013, enabling her to personally reach that next level of athletic prowess. She is a huge ambassador of CrossFit® to the female population and regularly represents CrossFit Fareham in national competitions.

sam

SAM LUNN AKA ‘LIQUID’

As an original member, Sam stepped into the box a skinny and unconfident tennis-playing physics geek who collapsed the first time he attempted a handstand. 6 years on, he is now CrossFit® level 2 qualified and one of CrossFit Fareham’s elite athletes. On the opposite end of the spectrum to most, Sam has been successfully attempting to gain weight since he started doing CrossFit®, and therefore understands exactly how hard it is to put on muscle and bulk up. As an integral part of the coaching team, he coaches classes and individual members with a passion to help them achieve their own personal goals. He loves CrossFit®, he loves training, he loves competing and he loves learning how to make people move better.

  • CrossFit® level 2
  • CrossFit® Gymnastics level 1
  • BWL level 1.
  • BSc (hons) Physics

stephen-holloway

Stephen Holloway

Stephen is one of just 26 physiotherapists offering the Hendrickson Method of treatment in the UK and the only Hendrickson Practitioner in Hampshire. He first discovered the Hendrickson approach in 2008, and was immediately impressed by the treatment itself and the underlying philosophy. As he explains, ‘Hendrickson considers the way the body spirals into dysfunction and uses a reverse technique to aid healing. In my experience, it promotes faster healing in many clinical presentations’.

Our Members

There is simply no gym like CrossFit Fareham. It has really opened up my eyes to how much fun REAL training can be. Since following Matt’s advice, my tummy has flattened and I have a new lease of life. Thank you so much for making me what I am today.

Lori Elgar

Lori Elgar

Since joining CrossFit Fareham I have completely changed the bad habits that developed over the years. Eating healthy, training regularly and hard, have changed me from someone who couldn’t run 400m, to completing a full WOD five weeks later.
